“Before you run, check to see if the bulldog has teeth.” ~ Les Brown ~

SELF HELP QUESTION TO PONDER: Fear often cripple many of us and prevent us from realizing our dreams. What are you afraid of?


  1. Become aware of  what you’re afraid of. Make a list.
  2. Review each of the  fears on your list. Are they real? In other words, what evidence do you have to support this? Give specific examples.
  3. Could some of  your fears be based upon your perception? Do a reality check. Share your fear with someone you trust and who will be  honest  with you. This could give you new insight because so often, we are our worst enemies!
  4. Last but definitely not least, choose one of your fears and take an action to overcome it. For instance, if public speaking is one of your fears. Take a small risk, and volunteer to give an update at your weekly staff meeting at work. Get some support from a friend/coworker. Having a friendly face in the room can be helpful because this person is  someone from whom you can draw some positive energy!
